WATCH: Illinois’ Tito Odenigbo ejected for throwing flag back at official

By Jesse Reed

It’s been a rough season for the Illinois Fighting Illini, who haven’t been able to stay in many fights and had just two wins heading into Week 13. During Saturday’s game against Northwestern, Tito Odenigbo got sick and tired of being pushed around by the Wildcats and pushed back.

Only, instead of pushing back at his opponent, Odenigbo pushed back against the officials. He ended up getting tossed from the game after throwing a penalty flag back at a ref.

That’s not ideal.

The junior defensive lineman will likely have to endure a tongue lashing from head coach Lovie Smith after this one’s over.
